HC Deb 24 May 1928 vol 217 c2083W

asked the Home Secretary if, in view of the calamity in Hamburg, attended with serious loss of life, caused by the explosion of a tank containing a poison gas called phosgene, he can say if any such or similar gases are stored in this country; and, if so, what precautions are taken against the possibility of their escape on to the civil population?


I should be glad if the hon. Member will defer his question till after the Recess. Certain investigations are being made at the present time into the question of the storage of gases under pressure, but I cannot give him a full answer to his question without longer notice.
